A Unique Holiday Cottage 


Shaftoe Mews House is a traditional country home with a contemporary design. This unique holiday house is located in a private gated court yard, based in the centre of Haydon Bridge, a country village which sits upon the river Tyne in the heart of rural Northumberland.

Located just 3 minutes from Langley Castle, 5 minutes from the Roman Wall,  10 minutes from the market town of Hexham and 35 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Newcastle Upon Tyne or Carlisle. Shaftoe Mews House is the ideal rural retreat, with peace and tranquility, an abundance of tourist attractions and the convenience of surrounding towns and cities.

One of the things that makes this a unique holiday house is the abundance of modern and traditional original artworks throughout the house, all of which are created by local artists and many are for sale.
